Sinclair, Jeanne; Jang, Eunice Eunhee; Vincett, Megan – Reading Research Quarterly, 2019
This study examined the literacy profiles of students from diverse home-language backgrounds and tracked those profiles from grade 6 to grade 10. The authors also investigated the predictive relations of students' immigration background, gender, and participation in two instructional programs. The results from latent class and latent transition…

Clark, Andrew F.; Wilk, Piotr; Gilliland, Jason A. – Journal of School Health, 2019
Background: Some Canadian schools have modified their daily schedules from the traditional school day (TSD) schedule (two 15-minute breaks and one 60-minute break) to a balanced school day (BSD) schedule (two 40-minute breaks). While this change increases daily planning and instructional time, it also changes the amount of time available for…

Poirier, Martine; Temcheff, Caroline E.; Déry, Michèle; Toupin, Jean; Verlaan, Pierrette; Lemelin, Jean-Pascal – Journal of Early Adolescence, 2019
Youth with conduct problems present frequently depressive symptoms. Academic skills are thought to be a mediating variable by which conduct problems could lead to depressive symptoms. No studies have longitudinally compared this model among school-aged boys and girls with different levels of conduct problems. Cascade models were tested to examine…

Dys, Sebastian P.; Peplak, Joanna; Colasante, Tyler; Malti, Tina – Developmental Psychology, 2019
Economically disadvantaged children often lack the resources to purchase popular goods and participate in their preferred social groups' activities, making it difficult to fit in. Meanwhile, children from middle socioeconomic status (SES) families may have additional influence over whether low SES children are included in such groups. We examined…

Rees, Carol A. B.; Roth, Wolff-Michael – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Teacher-student discourse continues to be teacher-centred even though researchers and reform documents have recommended changes toward increased levels of student-centred discourse. In science education this situation is paralleled by effort to make scientific inquiry more student-centred. The purpose of this study was to investigate how discourse…

Garcia Cortés, Olga Mireya; Parks, Susan – Canadian Modern Language Review, 2019
This study explores the code-switching practices of five core ESL teachers from the elementary grades in Quebec francophone schools. Through a fine-grained emic analysis of the teachers' reasons for code-switching, the study illuminates how they variously used French as a resource to fulfil their institutional roles as teachers. In addition, the…

Paquette-Smith, Melissa; Buckler, Helen; White, Katherine S.; Choi, Jiyoun; Johnson, Elizabeth K. – Developmental Psychology, 2019
Language and accent strongly influence the formation of social groups. By five years of age, children already show strong social preferences for peers who speak their native language with a familiar accent (Kinzler, Shutts, DeJesus, & Spelke, 2009). However, little is known about the factors that modulate the strength and direction of…

Sheehan, Dwayne P.; Lienhard, Karin – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2019
The objective of this study was to evaluate gross motor competence and growth spurt in Canadian youth. Eighty-two children (38 boys, 44 girls) were assessed over a time period of five years. Growth rate was measured quarterly; motor competence was evaluated once per year using the Bruininks-Oseretsky Test of Motor Proficiency. Peak height velocity…

MacLeod, Andrea A. N.; Castellanos-Ryan, Natalie; Parent, Sophie; Jacques, Sophie; Séguin, Jean R. – International Journal of Bilingual Education and Bilingualism, 2019
Differences between monolingual and multilingual vocabulary development have been observed but few studies provide a longitudinal perspective on vocabulary development before and following school entry. This study compares vocabulary growth profiles of 106 multilingual children to 211 monolingual peers before and after school entry to examine…

Landerl, Karin; Freudenthaler, H. Harald; Heene, Moritz; De Jong, Peter F.; Desrochers, Alain; Manolitsis, George; Parrila, Rauno; Georgiou, George K. – Scientific Studies of Reading, 2019
Although phonological awareness (PA) and rapid automatized naming (RAN) are confirmed as early predictors of reading in a large number of orthographies, it is as yet unclear whether the predictive patterns are universal or language specific. This was examined in a longitudinal study across Grades 1 and 2 with 1,120 children acquiring one of five…

Reimer, Kristin Elaine – Journal of Peace Education, 2019
The practice and popularity of restorative justice (RJ) in education has been growing in recent years. RJ can be understood in dramatically different ways by those implementing it.

Dare, Lynn; Nowicki, Elizabeth – Journal of Educational Research, 2019
For high-ability students to develop their full potential, they require evidence-based interventions tailored to their exceptional needs. Educational acceleration has proven effective with many high-ability students, but educators sometimes express concerns about social issues, and such concerns may block access to accelerative interventions.…

Archambault, Catherine; Mercer, Sterett H.; Cheng, Michèle P.; Saqui, Sonja – Canadian Journal of School Psychology, 2019
Research on the development of reading skills in bilingual students suggests that reading skills develop interdependently across languages. The current study examined the effects of a French reading fluency intervention on the French and English reading skills of three Grade 3 students attending a French immersion program using a concurrent…

Carsley, Dana; Heath, Nancy L. – Journal of Educational Research, 2019
The authors investigated the effectiveness of a mindfulness art activity compared with a free draw/coloring activity on test anxiety in children. The sample consisted of 152 students (50% female; Mage = 10.38 years, SD = 0.88 years) randomly assigned to a mindful (n = 76) or free (n = 76) group. Participants completed a standardized measure of…
